In Response to Re: Did you ever hear of a TV club?:
You remind me why I still miss my original manicurist down here, who left after her first child was born .. she loved all the reality shows, and we'd catch up on what was happening on them! My current manicurist doesn't watch much TV.
My guess is that reading a book seems a more intellectual & productive pursuit, than watching a TV series, so people are more motivated to "officially" discuss the books they read, but only chat informally about what's going on with a TV series. Also, most people read one book at a time, so it's easier to select & discuss 1 book with a group; we all watch dozens of TV shows/series at the same time, and as you can see from our discussions here, they often expand to cover all the shows in a franchise (i.e. Real Housewives). Another reason might be that it's easy to have a book group meet monthly, and that gives members plenty of time to read the selected book. But TV series may last several months, and there's no longer an standard start/end time for special series, so it might be more complicated to schedule regular "TV Club" meetings, when series overlap the way they do.

I have friends like that at work who like different shows that i watch and we catch up from time to time and talk about what is going on and our favorite people etc... otherwise yes it would be hard to control what you were talking about but it could be fun but I guess I will just have to wonder cause I don't want to start one.. as far as more intellectual.. don't know as I don't belong as I don't (sorry book club people) get into the why's and reasons as much I guess.
